Religious Education

Religious Education is central to our curriculum and school life at Cardinal Newman. We encourage the children to engage with the deepest questions of life and faith. 

We follow the Come and See programme of study in accordance with Diocesan guidance. The programme follows a yearly cycle according to the liturgical year and covers all the sacraments, feasts and traditions of the Church.  As part of the Come and See programme, we teach about the world faiths, Judaism and Islam. We also have a World Faiths week which provides the opportunity for deeper learning in this area.

Following the stipulation of the Bishops Conference of England and Wales, the school spends 10% of the teaching week on Religious Education. Religious Education is at the heart of our learning at Cardinal Newman school which is reflected in our school environment.
